Stability Testing for Dietary Supplements
Duration: 60 Minutes
The purpose is to present recommendation for supporting the voluntary shelf-life (expiration) dating claims of dietary supplements. The purpose of stability testing is to provide evidence on how the quality of formulation varies with time under the influence of a variety of environmental factors. Stability testing permits the establishment of recommended storage conditions and shelf lives.
Objectives of the Presentation
Why Should you Attend
- Introduction of a Stability Testing Plan and Program
- Selection of Batches
- Types of Testing
- Container-closure Systems
- Shelf-life Protocol
- Shelf-life Evaluation/Study Report
The most relevant scientific data are from stability (shelf-life) studies. It is recommended that manufacturers have a written testing program designed to assess the stability characteristics of the dietary supplement, and to use the results of stability testing to determine appropriate storage conditions and expiration dates. Attend this training to learn more about the Stability Testing for Dietary Supplements.
